Anthurium Care

Anthurium Care

Anthuriums are epiphytes, an air plant that comes from warm tropical areas. They are durable and low maintenance when it comes to care. Despite their appearance, the flowers on an Anthurium are not the colorful heart-shaped "flowers" but the spike in the middle!



Anthuriums need bright indirect sunlight for maximum growth, but be careful with direct light because it could burn the leaves.


Water well when the top couple inches of the soil gets dry. The more light = the more water they will need, just make sure to wait in between to prevent root rot. Note that these plants will tell you they are thirsty with droopy leaves!


Anthuriums are air plants and actually don't need any soil medium! But, if you do want to pot them, make sure they get good drainage as they are very sensitive to root rot.

Temperature & Humidity

Anthuriums are fans of warm and humid weather but they adapt well to normal home temperatures. Keep them out of drafts and try to keep the air around them humid with a humidifier, mist spraying leaves, or a pebble tray with water.


When your plant is growing in the warmer months, be sure to give them some good liquid fertilizer around once a month to promote growth.
